SRINAGAR Joint Resistance Leadersship, while hailing the statement issued by the newly appointed High Commissioner for United Nations Human Rights Commission, Michel Bachelet, termed it a ray of hope for all the suffering people facing the brunt of human rights violations in almost all conflict zones of the world.
Expressing their grave concern on the deteriorating health condition and the inhuman treatment meted out to the prisoners languishing in different jails in and outside Jammu and Kashmir, the JRL said our prisoners face the wrath of communal frenzy at the hands of fascist jail authorities.
The JRL while castigating the cruel and inimical jail authorities expressed its anguish for humiliating the pro-freedom leaders and activists on one pretext or the other and treating them as degraded creatures. Incarcerating a person and keeping him in solitude within the four walls of a prison, away from his children, parents and other family members, is itself a heart wrenching punishment, yet the Indian jail authorities does not look satisfied until they abuse and humiliate the prisoners of conscience belonging to the movement for right to self-determination, alleged the JRL.
The JRL condemned the jail authorities for the plight of prisoners languishing in various jails and saluted the high spirit and resolve of all political prisoners.
The incarcerated leaders and activists include Masrat Aalam Bhat, Dr. Gh. Mohammad Bhat, Muzafar Ahmad Dar, Dr. Shafi Sharyati, Dr. Mohammad Qasim, Gh. Qadir Bhat, Nazir Ahmad Sheikh, Tariq Ahmad Dar, Manzoor Ahmad, Ab. Gani Bhat, Mohammad Yousuf Falahi, Mohammad Yousuf Mir, Sarjan Barkati, Mushtaq-ul-Islam, Gh. Mohammad Khan Sopori, Farooq Tawheedi, Sheikh Mohammad Ramzan, Asadullah Parray, Umar Aadil Dar, Bashir Ahmad Qureshi, Hakeem Showkat, Siraj-ud-din, Ab Rashir Magloo and others.
